If, after five years we are, as a group still here we have all lost some, all won some and all learned.

Nobody bats 1000.


OK Ross, for some unknown reason in Baseball if someone were to get a hit EVERY time they were at the plate, that would be call batting 1000, although when annotating actual batting averages, they are listed as decimals [.333, .402]. So really, a perfect hitter would be hitting ONE, but that just doesn't sound American so...1000 it is.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

I understand, in cricket a perfect batting average is 100 - the best 1st class career batting average so far is Don Bradman with 99.94.

All across Australia the national broadcasters post office box number is 9994 in honour of his batting average - I kid you not...

Until BWOT, I thought ignorant dolts were an oppressed minority. Got that wrong.

On BWOT I do not know what that means seems appropriate.

Now that's funny right there, I don't care who you are.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

I have spanked mcbear and Jim so many times they don't use the shower at the gym anymore because people keep asking them why they have a hand print tattooed on their asses.
